The big-screen adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s The Host doesn’t hit theaters till March 29, yet there’s already chatter that the Twilight author might turn this sci-fi thriller into a trilogy.
“Once you’ve created characters that have life to them, unless you kill them all, you know where their stories go. You’re always aware of what happens next,” Meyer told the Associated Press earlier this week. “I’ve got outlines for the next books. I would hope that this would be a three-book arc, but we’ll see.”
Not so fast, cautions a source close to Meyer, who tells EW that there’s been no new news to report on the sequel/trilogy front. Besides, Meyer’s plate is pretty full at the moment — in addition to promoting The Host she’s a producer on the newly Sundance-acquired Austenland, starring Keri Russell.

Stephen Rubin, president and publisher of Henry Holt and Company, announced that Bill O’Reilly, best known for anchoring the Fox News program The O’Reilly Factor, will follow-up his best-selling books, Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot and Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination That Changed America Forever, with another chronicle of events. O’Reilly’s newest venture is of a more biblical fashion. Along with Martin Dugard, O’Reilly will write Killing Jesus: A History.
According to a press release, “Killing Jesus will tell the story of Jesus of Nazareth as a beloved and controversial young revolutionary brutally killed by Roman soldiers. O’Reilly will recount the seismic political and historical events that made his death inevitable.”
“Jesus Christ has not walked among us physically for more than 2,000 years, yet his presence today is felt the world over and his spirit is worshipped by more than 2.2 billion people. His teachings, his legacy, his life as a flesh-and-blood man, and his death created the world in which we live,” O’Reilly said in a press release.
The book will be published on Sept. 24. Check out the cover below: READ FULL STORY
Legendary music biz executive Clive Davis opens up about Whitney Houston, Kelly Clarkson, and his own bisexuality in new memoir
It is almost easier to list the artists legendary music business executive Clive Davis hasn’t worked with than the ones he has during his half century-long career. Suffice it to say that the founder of Arista and J Records and the current chief creative officer of Sony Music Entertainment has overseen releases by everyone from voice-of-his-generation Bob Dylan to Milli Vanilli who, as it turned out, weren’t even the voices of themselves.
The Associated Press reports that HarperCollins has announced a two-book deal with Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Randi is planning to write a memoir titled Dot Complicated, as well as a children’s book. The memoir, which is scheduled for a Nov. 5 release, will provide insight into the digital world. From her time as Facebook’s marketing director to her time as a mother and founder of the Zuckerberg Media Company, Randi will share her experiences with life in the digital age.
“I am thrilled to be working with HarperCollins to share some of my own crazy experiences on the front lines of social media and to inspire people of all ages to embrace technology, as well as the new set of social norms that come along with it,” she said.

Growing up is one thing, but undergoing a complete makeover is something else.
At least that’s what fans of Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables are saying about the newest cover of the three-piece set published in November. In the books — which are in the public domain and therefore susceptible to any cover — the character is a pre-teen described as having red hair and freckles, and yet the newest cover reveals a very mature blond-haired, blue-eyed young lady running her fingers through her hair. Is this how you pictured Anne?

You might know her from FX’s animated show Archer as the voice of Cheryl, or if you’re an Arrested Development fan, she’ll always be Kitty Sanchez, but with the upcoming publication of her first book, Judy Greer is proving that in addition to being a comedic actress, she is also a comedic author. Doubleday has recently acquired the rights to Greer’s humorous essay collection, I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star.
Greer’s essays cover a variety of topics, from growing up in the Midwest to her career in film and television (often playing a “best friend”) as well as other predicaments, such as a solo trip she once took to Spain. READ FULL STORY
Sean Howe’s recent history of Marvel Comics: The Untold Story was only the latest chronicle of one theme that runs through every honest assessment of the lives of comic book artists: That they have been since the dawn of the industry underpaid, overworked, and exploited. Add to this the art-world prejudice that these men (and they were mostly men, at least in the 1950s/60s world of superhero, horror, and romance comics) are lesser talents than fine artists, and you can see why the gorgeous, poignant new book Comics About Cartoonists: Stories About the World’s Oddest Profession, edited and designed by Craig Yoe (IDW/Yoe Books) exerts a potent fascination.

The music biz memoir has become one of the hottest trends over the past couple of years — and the boys in the (record label) boardroom are not getting left behind. Today, Grand Central is publishing Tommy Mottola’s autobiography, Hitmaker: The Man and his Music, which he co-penned with Cal Fussman. Formerly the Chairman CEO of Sony Music, Mottola developed an amazing array of talent, including Celine Dion, Gloria Estefan, Shakira, and Mariah Carey. Mottola thought Carey was so amazing that in 1993 he married her, despite being both more than two decades older and the songbird’s technical boss.
